Asus TUF Tries to Make PC Building Easy

Asus TUF Tries to Make PC Building Easy

That's probably the goal, of course, but in any case Asus has taken two more steps toward that eventuality with the release of the ROG Strix Gaming Chassis and the ROG Thor 1200-W Platinum power supply. It has an additional 6-inch 1080p screen, similar to the phone, and has its own set of speakers and a cooling system.

The ROG Strix Gaming Chassis includes a Quick Charge 3.0 port, USB 3., Gen 2 Type C port, and comes with a pre-installed PWM 140mm fans with magnetic bearings.

With 8GB Ram and up to 512GB internal storage, this thing is going to be a demon, burning through all your games and giving you tons of room to store them, but it shouldn't get too hot thanks to a couple of cooling measures. If you're anxious about thermal throttling, ASUS has taken steps to ensure that won't be happening by including vapor-chamber cooling and copper heat spreading to dissipate heat quicker than most phones. It features a "3D vapor-chamber cooling system", and has moved the charging chip so that heat dissipation is improved. We've seen ports of popular console games work on smartphones, but also titles developed specifically for the mobile platform run with stunning graphics and framerates. Asus may have the ideal gaming laptop for you.

For some time gaming-centric phones were considered as a novelty in the smartphone world.

What Kim and Moon spoke about at surprise summit
He urged Washington and Pyongyang to resolve their differences through " more direct and closer dialogue between their leaders". As you know, there are meetings going on as we speak in a certain location which I won't name, but you'd like the location.


All three products will make their debut in the third quarter of 2018, and there's no word on pricing or availability just yet. Secondly, the gaming scene on Android isn't exactly exploding, with most of the games on the store being of the casual kind that won't benefit from the various controller accessories in anyway. The display itself is a 6-inch 2160 x 1080 AMOLED display with a faster 90Hz refresh rate, not quite 120Hz like Razer, but Razer uses a lesser quality LCD versus the AMOLED on the ASUS ROG Phone. It also houses a Pixart PAW3327 optical sensor, which supports DPI up to 6200- more than enough sensitivity for most gamers. An integrated 600mAh battery powers the second 6in display so you can livestream games via one display and play on the other, and extra haptics gives force feedback in games.

As far as accessories go though, the coolest has to be the Twinview dock.

ASUS Aura Sync RGB lighting is included, and you can customise macros and functions using the ASUS Armoury II software. That's not all, there's also two side controllers called the Gamevice that clip on either side of the device, and you can also get a variety of docks - including a desktop mounted one for full-scale gaming. There's a Mobile Desktop Dock that allows you to hook the ROG Phone up to a 4K display, mouse, and keyboard. Accessories are actually a big focus of the ROG Phone, and the ones ASUS has announced thus far seem pretty impressive. Nevertheless, we do not expect it to come cheap. There is also a 30mm gap behind the motherboard tray to bunch your cables up and keep them out of sight, while also being able to close the side panel easily.
